Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

FISH­ERS can take part in Reel It In, a fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion at Two Rocks Ma­rina on Satur­day.

Or­gan­ised by local busi­ness Em­pire Events & Mar­kets, the com­pe­ti­tion al­lows an­glers to show off their fish­ing skills while rais­ing funds for Two Rocks Vol­un­teer Ma­rine Res­cue Group (TRVMRG).

TRVMRG deputy com­man­der David Haynes wel­comed the event, with the last fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion in the area held more than two years ago.

“I used to or­gan­ise fish­ing com­pe­ti­tions here, which were very pop­u­lar,” he said.

“It gives fish­ers a rea­son to get out on the wa­ter and show off their fish­ing skills, and in this in­stance, it helps to raise much-needed funds to ma­rine res­cue.” Com­man­der Pam An­nes­ley and Deputy Com­man­der David Haynes, from Two Rocks Vol­un­teer Ma­rine Res­cue Group.

Or­gan­iser Vir­ginia Dziegielewski said BCF vouch­ers were up for grabs as well as three months’ free trailer boat stor­age from Two Rocks Boat Lifters.

“Reel It In is a spe­cial on­ce­off event be­ing held at Two Rocks Ma­rina and costs only $10 per adult shore fish­ing and $5 per child or $20 per boat to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion,” she said.

“There will be a mys­tery weight for each fish cat­e­gory; the clos­est to the mys­tery weight will win the prize.”
